irreverent spaz


 

This is the 4"x6" self portrait I made for a swap.

The two circles spin to reveal different words in the little boxes.  

The top box is an adjective.

The bottom box is a noun.

Today I might be a cheerful educator.

Tomorrow I might be an energetic introvert.

Try your luck!

Maybe you'll get the creative smart-ass.

Hope you don't get the crabby martyr.

  14. Do the dimensions include the circles, or not include the circles? Because I was going to stick on a couple hundred dollar bills to the side of my card, but I realized that would make it more than 4 inches.

    Oh, well.

    Maybe next time.


    (this is a truly brilliant idea, missy.)
